SCSS IV: 267

On the moon at a mountain retreat, for a Fifty Poem Sequence at the residence of the Lay Priest Prince of the Second Order.

松のとをおしあけ方の山かぜに雲もかからぬ月を見るかな

matsu no to o
oshiakegata no
yamakaze ni
kumo mo kakaranu
tsuki o miru kana
Upon my pinewood door
Pushes at the break of dawn
A breeze from off the mountains, so
Unencumbered by the clouds
Do I see the moon!

Ietaka, Senior Third Rank

A kuzushiji version of the poem's text.
Created with Soan.

Kinkai wakashū 34

After I had had various people compose on the scent of plum carried on the breeze.

梅がかをゆめの枕にさそひきてさむるまちける春の山風

ume ga ka o
yume no makura ni
sasoikite
samuru machikeru
haru no yamakaze
The scent of plum
To my pillow, where I lay dreaming
Was beckoned—
Waiting ‘til I awakened did
The mountain breeze in springtime.
Created with Soan.

氷とくはるたちくらしみよしののよしののたきのこゑまさるなり

Ice melting
Spring has come on scene, it seems;
In fair Yoshino,
Yoshino Falls’
Roar is fine, indeed!

はなの色はかすみにこめてみえずともかをだにぬすめ春の山風

hana no iro wa
kasumi ni komete
miezu tomo
ka o dani nusume
haru no yamakaze
The blossoms’ hues
Have blended with the haze, so
I see them not, yet
Their very scent is plundered by
Spring’s breezes from the mountains.
